Primary Care in PhiladelphiaAt PVH Institute we are rethinking healthcare delivery, but still holding true to the core principles of family medicine. We care for all ages from young children through to older adults and seek to develop a long term relationship with our patients. Our primary goal is to help you live your best life when you’re feeling well, but also help you to navigate the healthcare system and be an intermediary between specialists when you’re not.
What To ExpectHere at PVH Institute we are reevaluating the way that primary care services are delivered. There are two problems that we seek to tackle in the current primary care model. The first is time. Insurance overhead, ancillary services, and a myriad of other cost adding measures have constrained the physician patient relationship to an average of about 8-10 minutes per visit. At PVH we routinely offer 30-45 minute visits to make sure you have time and access to your physician. The second problem is reactivity. The American medical system is one of the most advanced in the world and capable of treating a wide range of illnesses. However, our system lacks when it comes to encouraging lifestyle measures to improve health and wellness. If nowhere else, this is evident in the rising obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes in this country. At PVH Institute, we are partnering with La Maison Health and Fitness to build pathways to healthier living for individuals seeking a fresh start, or just trying to build on existing healthy habits. We believe health is more than the absence of illness, it is the best version of you.
